Thetford Cons won again defeating Swaffham Cons 2-1, home captain Steve Wright increased his best score to a fine 288 as did Mark Williams to 222, while Swaffham Cons’ Graham Petitt recorded a fine total of 304 and a break of 46.

And in the Narbeck Boys’ League, Lynn Maltings lead Gaywood by 1.5 points while West Acre A are third a further three points behind Gaywood.

Well done to James Eyre (West Acre C) who recorded a nice 20 break during his close defeat to Gaywood’s Daniel Drew, who again impressed with some good billiards and a good match temperament.

Jack Easter of Acre B equalled his pb of 81, while Callum Lawlor of Acre D improved his highest score to 64.

These last two scores were achieved in the same game, which Jack won by two points.

Gaywood’s 2-1 away win at Acre C keeps them on course to catch the Malting’s who lost 2-1 to Acre A.

League newcomer Jack Cooper, for the Maltings, played well to defeat Bruce Welham, however Jack Easter (who was guesting for the A team) played some very good billiards to clinch Acre A’s win when defeating James Rix.

Very well done to all the players on these excellent achievements and to those league players who have qualified for the finals day of the National Junior Billiards Championships on April 17 in Newark, Nottinghamshire.
